Supertool73,
Thank you for the feedback. It seems Leupold addressed customer comments about their turrets. I also purchased the older VX-6 model when it went on sale to make room for the newer VX-6HD. I would like to compare the Leica, Vortex and Leupold in 2-10.

Finally received the last check from my nephew. He also informed me that working sucks and working hard for a little amount of money really sucks. Welcome to the real world kid. BTW, the Vortex with the HD glass is great. Thanks Ilya.

I just received my new Vortex Viper HS 4-16x50 last Friday 2/9/18, mounted it on Saturday 2/10, went to shoot Sunday 2/11, and sent the scope back to Vortex Tuesday 2/13. I couldn't get a sharp focus at 100 yards. When I adjusted the scope for the sharpest image I could get (which was still not clear by no means), the parallax was horrendous. I could shift my head slightly and get a 3-4 inch shift of the crosshairs at 100 yards. When I adjusted for the least parallax, the image was super blurry.

Consider the Nikon. Wish I would have. I guess I'll see how good the Vortex warranty really is....

Everyone makes a lemon occasionally.... The vortex is still a better scope and you will be happy with their CS.  I dare say if you had gotten a lemon with Nikon you'd not have such an easy road ahead with the warranty.
